How much would I feed an angler and a Fu Manchu lion? Like how many fish per week?

It will work. Yes, I would invest in a skimmer to keep the water to correct parameters. I have a reef octopus bh-1000(external pump), and the 1000 with the pump on the inside, they work great! If you get a third fish, make it something that will swim around more. The angler will just lay there. The fu Manchu will swim and perch. I'd say a Picasso(Huma) triggerfish. They swim only. Since you are upgrading in the future, you can just get them all juveniles now. I wouldn't go with a valentini, only because they are huge fin nippers. Maybe something else in the Toby family.

Okay. Well the puffer was something my gf really wants. I'd get another puffer but idk what to get. I want something that would be okay in a 29 cause I might not be able to upgrade for a couple years. :/

and I heard the angler would eat the puffer and the lion. Have you ever kept the 2 together?

Tank not big enough for all 3 at adult size. I would be surprised if the angler does not eventually eat the puffer.

Use a skimmer if you overload on fish.

Well I'd either get the angler and the lion
or the lion and the puffer. If I could. Think the lion would be fine with the angler?

If not think I could put a lion and a small Valentini puffer in the 29? And add a snowflake eel when I upgrade to my 55?

The lion and angler are fine. They are compatible according to liveaquaria and my LFS has them together and they are fine.

Awesome! Would the second option work also? Just so I know my options?
